    Tin Pot Dictatorship levels.

    The Conservatives are threatening to review Channel 4’s broadcasting remit if they win the general election after the channel decided to replace Boris Johnson with a melting ice sculpture during its climate change debate.

    A Tory source confirmed that the party would review Channel 4’s public service broadcasting obligations if Johnson is returned to Downing Street next month. Under the proposal, first reported by BuzzFeed News, they would “look at whether its remit should be better focused so it is serving the public in the best way possible”.

    The Cons seem to have excessive power in editing and manipulating the media. A couple of weeks ago they cut the footage of Buffon shambling at the Cenopath and laying his wreath upside down.

    Now they've cut audience reaction to a very reasonable question.

    OK, so.

    1. Days ago, Dorothy Byrne, senior Channel 4 executive makes it clear it is acceptable to call Boris Johnson a 'known liar'.

    2. Senior Channel 4 anchor man Jon Snow on film at Glastonbury chanting 'f**k the Tories'.

    3. The Tories sent Michael Gove in Johnson's stead and Channel 4 refused to accept him.

    4. The Conservative party has sent a detailed letter of complaint to Ofcom outlining the 'breaches' by channel 4,

    The LWW on here make much of press impartiality, hopefully Ofcom will honour their stance on impartiality and remove Channel 4's licence.

    1. Proven fact at least twice - he was sacked for lying. No Press here in the chance meeting he had in the hospital when the Press were standing next to him.

    2. Can you supply a link or the video. Not seen this.

    3. Last time I checked it was a leaders debate. Is Gove the Tory leader? Clutching at straws here.

    4. Good as is their right.
